The goal of a property tax appeal is
to reduce your Property tax bill
However, the issue in a tax appeal case is the market value of the subject property, or the tax assessment. The amount you pay on a property tax bill is calculated by multiplying the millage rate times the assessed value. Georgia law requires that the tax assessed value represents the amount a knowledgable buyer would pay a willing seller in an arms length transaction as of January 1 each tax year. OCGA 48-5-2(3). Therefore, if we can get the tax assessment reduced through an appeal then the amount of the bill is reduced proportionally.
